Barry York

Barry York was sent to Kokomo, Indiana, as a church planter in 1991.  Through an evangelistic and disciple-making ministry the congregation of Sycamore Reformed Presbyterian Church was organized in 1994, where Barry served as pastor until June of 2013 (sermons here).  From 2002-2013 he also served as the administrator and a teacher for Sycamore Covenant Academy, an educational and service program sponsored by the church devoted to preparing covenant youth for college and life.  In July of 2013, Barry moved with his family to western Pennsylvania as he became the Professor of Pastoral Theology at the Reformed Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh.

Following their redemption by the Lord Jesus, Barry married his high-school sweetheart Miriam in 1985.  They have six children and one granddaughter. In addition to reading and writing, he loves time with his wife, playing with his kids, and still mixing it up a bit on the basketball court when his aging body cooperates.

    Dear Pastor Barry,
    I am a guy from your past… this is Jae, the Korean guy with a wife named, Hae-kyung. I see your photo here online assuring your well-being (in all aspects) from your mature (in a positively good sense) and bright posture. So glad you and your family seem doing well in the Lord. I also recognize you moved to a different state being a professor! The Lord is indeed working mysteriously :) Just wanted to thank God and you for rendering me a good series of memories with you & family during our stay in Kokomo. Wishing your continuous propser in the Lord!! – Jae / 586-907-0476

      Dear Jae, it is great to hear from you. Glad to hear you and your family are well. Yes, we are in Pennsylvania now. The Lord has been good to us though we miss Kokomo. Our love to you and Hae-kyung!
